Tooru Kitajima (TK From Ling Tosite Sigure)

Post  IhateMana on Thu May 12, 2016 8:11 pm



北嶋徹 (TK From 凛として時雨)
Voice type: Tornado tenor
Melodic range: E♭2 - B♭5
Full range: E♭2 - C6

Significant high notes
C6: (“DISCO FLIGHT”, “Telecastic fake show”, “Yuukei no Kioku”)
B5: (“Akai Yuuwaku”, “Boukan”, “Knife Vacation)
B♭5: (“DISCO FLIGHT”, “Enigmatic Feeling”, “I Not Crazy Am You Are”, “Nakano Kill You”, “Sergio Echigo”, “Souzou no Security”, “Turbocharger ON”)
A5: (“Abnormalize”, “Boukan”, “Knife Vacation)
G♯5: (“Boukan”, “Crazy Kanjou Style”, “Enigmatic Feeling”, “Feeling Your UFO”, “Last Dance Revolution”, “Telecastic fake show”)
G5: (“I was music”, “illusion is mine”, “Nakano Kill You”, “Unravel”)
F♯5: (“1/f no Kanshoku”, “Akai Yuuwaku”, “Boukan”, “illusion is mine”, “JPOP Xfile”, “Last Dance Revolution”, “Souzou no Security”, “Telecaster no Shinjitsu”)
F5: (“Abnormalize”, “Cool J”, “I was music”, “JPOP Xfile”, “Nakano Kill You”, “Sergio Echigo”, “Turbocharger ON”, “Who What Who What”, “Yuukei no Kioku”)
E5: (“Akai Yuuwaku”, “Crazy Kanjou Style”, “Knife Vacation”)
E♭5: (“Boukan”, “DISCO FLIGHT”, “Feeling Your UFO”, “I Not Crazy Am You Are”, “Sadistic Summer”, “Telecaster no Shinjitsu”, “Telecastic fake show”, “Turbocharger ON”, “Who What Who What”)
D5: (“Unravel”, “Yuukei no Kioku”)
C♯5: (“1/f no Kanshoku”, “Akai Yuuwaku”, “Knife Vacation”, “O.F.T”, “TK in the Yuukei”, “Tornado G”)
C5: (“Azayaka na Satsujin”, “Aki no Kehai no Arpeggio”)

Significant low notes… I suppose
B♭3: (“Acoustic”, “Boukan”, “Last Dance Revolution”)
A3: (“Abnormalize”, “I Not Crazy Am You Are”, “Sergio Echigo”, “Yuukei no Kioku”)
G♯3: (‘Crazy Kanjou Style”)
F3: (“Yuukei no Kioku”)
E♭3: (“Enigmatic Feeling”)
E♭2: (“Enigmatic Feeling”)

Blue: falsetto (notes where singer is not trying to ruin his voice)
Italics: notes where singer is attempting to destroy his voice in a non-melodic way this time
Underlined: notes where singer is attempting to destroy his voice and you don’t even get to hear it

As the name of his solo project would suggest, TK is the frontman for Japanese alternative post-hardcore trio Ling Tosite Sigure. TK generally forces his voice all the way through the upper 4th and 5th and does not even appear to possess a lower register as he very rarely drops his voice below middle C (also of note is that nearly every song he has sung has a 5th octave note in it).

Will get around to finishing this sometime soon. Can someone please tell me what they hear on the backing vocals at 0:52 and 2:03? They sound like very breathy 2nd octave notes and I hear E♭ but for the life of me I can't ascertain what exactly they bottom at

Not really a fan of his voice but his guitar playing is freaking absurd.

I swear all of his live performances are that weird head voice thing, similar to what Kellin Quinn does on acoustic things, but in a very out of place way. Weird voice. Sounds like he's going to crack on every note, but barley escapes it.

I like his voice in the context of their music but yeah this guy really has no grace to his singing, his breathing's all over the place live as well and he pushes pretty much everything above A4 so I'm really not sure how long he'll be able to keep his style of singing up for lol. His falsetto is surprisingly clean though.

Original video is not available in my country so idk if the vid i originally linked still works, but would still like a second opinion on the note I have listed as E♭2 (please excuse the fact that i had to use an AMV, it's the only version i can find with the song in it's original key). It's in the backing vocals at 0:51 "who are you". The same passage is done again at 2:03 but here I only here F2.

Honestly I just can't believe the note exists at all regardless of what it is cause I wasn't even sure this dude had a lower register, but it turns out it's pretty solid.

I would tell you if the E♭2 exists, but I unfortunately got my ears blown out by his high pitched shrieking. Laughing

Yup. Pretty much every song I've notewatched so far had a 5th octave note in it, usually E♭ or higher. He clearly doesn't have the range to sing the way he does, but he's damn determined that's his style; the juxtaposition of his awful high notes with Miyoko's clean ones is pretty cute.
